I actually agree with letting your emotions out, keeping them bottled up inside will worsen them.

I'm a downer but there are some songs which lift me up pretty pretty much every time I listen to them.

These are the only ones I could think of at the moment. Hope this will work for you like it does for me.

I had a beat down 2 summers ago. I don't know if I was depressed or not, but I really didn't feel good at all. My parents got divorced, my mom moved out, she always talked shit about my dad, my parents always fought over stupid things, my dad went money crazy and selfish(even though he makes more than enough), couldn't ever go to my sister since she was always gone with her friends, my friends were too busy for me and wouldn't understand anyway, girlfriend broke up with me and wanted to move on and cut off all contact because of her asshole parents(we're back together now though), lost in what I wanted to do for school, and all I wanted to do was sleep all day and drink whenever possible.

Drinking is what I did in the beginning because then I felt happy from it and then it backfired after my buzz turned to drunk, it made it way worse. I was starting to wish terrible things would happen. The only thing that helped was getting angry and aggressive in the gym. It really helped me forget my problems and channel my problems into pumping iron, which really helped my physical self and mental I basically drove myself insane most nights though. It eventually reached a breaking point to where I almost couldn't take anymore. It all stopped, my gf got back together with me, my parents got on friendly terms, and I got to used to everything eventually and started realizing where my life was going and that things were great.

Point is, things will turn out for the better eventually. Just don't go suicidal and don't result to substance abuse, it doesn't help.

I can't listen to Streetlight Manifesto & be depressed. I'm not sure it's possible.

I guess you don't listen to their lyrics. A lot of their songs are actually pretty depressing. They hate the shit out of suicide though, that's for sure.

True, but it still sounds too awesome!

Agreed, as you can see from my username. I'm just saying there songs aren't generally uplifting. Everything Went Numb is definitely not a happy album by any stretch of the imagination.

For me it would be: stop looking at the exercises in the book. I understand all theory and how to calculate stuff. Then I go to the exercises thing and there are no theory questions nor calculating the normal stuff, but all kind of different mathematical proofs with too little given equations. I got depressed.

Don't get me wrong, I dig both of them, but listening to them doesn't pull me out of a depression, it just makes me care less. Not conducive to what TS is asking for.

I generally find those inspirational videos people keep on putting online about 'living for the moment' and 'live like money wasn't an issue' quite depressing. It feels like someone angrily telling me I'm shit and shouldn't bother living if I can't do it right.

This is the only one that really does it right.

If you happen to be on a bad sleep schedule, fix it. Talk to someone you trust about it.

How else does one break the news to somebody that what they're doing is harmful to them?
